As excellent as Kubernetes is, the traction of tools like k3s has shown us that scaling down is just as important as scaling up. Meet faasd - a FaaS framework that uses battle-tested CNCF projects (containerd & CNI) and the OpenFaaS ecosystem to provide an alternative to FaaS on Kubernetes

With faasd, a function can cold-start in as little as 0.14s without resorting to stateful optimizations such as stateful containers that are injected with code. You can build, ship, and run containers built for both OpenFaaS and Knative. faasd was designed with portability in mind and runs on both Intel and ARM architecture

The use-case being explored for faasd is for a bundled VM appliances and for edge devices. Imagine a computer with direct access to cryptographic hardware, fast flash storage for CDN, or a TPU for machine-learning inference.

Through a live demo you’ll see an on-ramp into the CNCF ecosystem for teams who want to avoid lock-in, and aren’t quite ready for “full Kubernetes”
